"The Milwaukee Theatre Alliance is about strength in numbers. Those of us who love theater wish everyone would love theater. We believe in the power of theater to impact society in a positive way, to offer a community for lost souls and to provide the empathy the world so sorely needs. And we want more of Milwaukee to experience what we already know. By combining the strengths of the full range of hardworking Milwaukee theaters, the MTA hopes to advocate the art of theater and its benefits to more new patrons than ever before, while building a better support system for the theater community on the whole."
